what happens when we apply force below the centre of mass of a cube ? Will it tip?

  • Science -

    depends.

    Is the cube attached to an immovable base?

    Is the direction of the force horizontal?

    Is the contact point of the force off the vertical axis?

    There are a lot of variables which will affect the answer.
